The Holy Monastery of Great Meteoron

Local nameΗ Ιερά Μονή του Μεγάλου Μετεώρου
LocationKalambaka, Greece

Founded in the 14th century by a monk from Mount Athos, the Great Meteoron is the oldest and largest of the Meteora monasteries. Standing on top of a rock rising 615 meters above sea level, it is also the highest of all monasteries at Meteora.

Visit the main cathedral (katholikon) to admire beautiful 16th-century frescoes and Greek Byzantine art. Then, head to the refectory which now houses a museum with religious manuscripts and icons. Don't forget to peek into the kitchen still black with smoke and some original equipment on display.
